Hello! Please help me answer the questions on this assignment. Thank you.


MATH 131 ? Unit 3

 

Class Activity 08/16 1. If you make just one 90% confidence interval will it necessarily capture the population value

 

you are estimating? ______________________________________________________

 

2. If you make ten different 90% confidence intervals, how many of them do you think will

 

capture the value? _______________________________________________________

 

3. Consider the experiment of rolling a single six-sided dice. Let p be the population

 

proportion (classical probability) of rolling a 2. What is the value for p ? ____________

 

Explain your reasoning.

 

4. ^p is a sample proportion (empirical probability) of 2?s rolled. Use StatCrunch or Minitab

 

to simulate the experiment of rolling a single die 200 times to find your sample statistic,

 

^p .

 

^p =__________________ StatCrunch

 

Select Applets

 

Select Games

 

Select Fair Dice?

 

Choose a company

 

Click 100 rolls twice

 

The percent over the bar at 2 is your

 

sample ^p . Minitab

 

Select Calc from the menu bar.

 

Select Random Data.

 

Select Integer.

 

In the dialog box, make these entries:

 

Generate 200 rows of data.

 

Store in column C2.

 

Minimum value: 1

 

Maximum value: 6

 

Click on OK.

 

Select Stat from the menu bar.

 

Select Tables.

 

Select Tally.

 

Type C2 in the Variable box.

 

Check Counts.

 

Click OK.

 

Use the count next to 2 to find ^p 5. Construct a 99% confidence interval for p , the population probability of rolling a 2. Show

 

your work, using the value from StatCrunch or Minitab listed in #4. 1 MATH 131 ? Unit 3

 

Class Activity 08/16 6. Does your confidence interval contain the true value computed in #3? ______________

 

7. If 100 students form a 99% confidence interval, how many of them would you expect to

 

capture the true p value? _________________________________________

 

8. If 1000 students form a 99% confidence interval, how many of them would you expect to

 

contain the true p value? _________________________________________

 

9. If StatCrunch is available, select Applets, Confidence Intervals, for a proportion. Choose the first option and fill in the value for p that you found in #3.

 

Initial confidence level should be 0.99.

 

Initial sample size should be 200.

 

Compute How many of the intervals captured the population value (noted by the vertical line)?

 

_____________

 

10. Repeat the steps in #9 and change the confidence level to 0.90 (leave other values the

 

same), what changed in the width of the intervals illustrated? Explain why. 11. Repeat the steps in #9 and change the sample size to 30 (leave other values the

 

same), what changed in the width of the intervals illustrated? Explain why. 12. On the website Real Clear Politics poll data from a variety of polls is updated regularly. On

 

June 20 the Monmouth University poll results showed that of 721 likely voters 49% would

 

choose the Democratic candidate to win the November election. What is the margin of

 

error for this poll? Is the election ?too close to call?? Explain. 2 MATH 131 ? Unit 3
